The Lakers had their 3-game winning streak with a L in their last game, but in their streak they beat the legit teams of the Warriors and Hawks.
L.A. has a solid offense, but they have struggled on the defensive end of the court.
The Kings have won 2 in a row including beating a solid Raptors team north of the border.
In their last games the Kings beat the New Orleans Pelicans 102-94 and the Lakers lost to the Dallas Mavericks 109-97.
The Lakers rank 4th in the NBA in points per game, but only 26th in opponents’ points per game.
The Lakers did not have a bad shooting night in their loss to the Mavs, but they allowed Dallas to shoot 52.4% from the floor.
The team’s leading scorer in D’Angelo Russell only went for 12 points and the bench really helped out with Lou Williams and Jeremy Clarkson combining for 37 points.
The Lakers have a lot of guard scoring and while they need to shoot the rock well from outside it is key that the big guys play good D in the lane in this game against Sacto stud C DeMarcus Cousins.
Last season the Lakers dropped all 4 of their games facing the Kings.
The Lakers are only 1-3 on the road this season.
The Kings only rank 23rd in the league in points per game, but a solid 11th in opponents’ points per game.
In their win over the Pelicans in their last game the Kings shot 48.1% from the floor and allowed New Orleans to shoot 45.2% from the floor.
Rudy Gay and DeMarcus Cousins combined for 49 points in the Pelicans win and they got some help from Aaron Afflalo, who went for 15, and a bench that combined for 32 points.
Darren Collison came off the bench to score 9 points in his first game back from suspension. His offense will be needed since the Kings don’t have a ton of scoring options.
Cousins and Gay are each averaging over 22 ppg while no other Sacramento player is averaging in double figures. Yeah, it is pretty simple, as the Lakers need to key on this duo and not allow them to shoot a high FG%.
The Kings are 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 games facing the Lakers.
The Kings are 2-1 at home this season with the only loss on their floor coming against the San Antonio Spurs.
